Applied Electronics Upgrades the Digital Signage System at Montréal Heart Institute to Better Promote Cardiovascular Health and Education

Montréal, Québec


The Institut de Cardiologie de Montréal / Montreal Heart Institute, in Montréal, Québec, is a specialty hospital dedicated to the development of cardiology. Founded in 1954 and currently affiliated with the Université de Montréal, the Institute is the best place for treating cardiovascular issues in the greater Montréal area.



In late 2016, Applied Electronics upgraded the Institute’s digital signage system to help promote cardiovascular health and education.
The Haivision Makito X enterprise video solution is ideal for live, interactive and headend applications. The Makito X encoder, H.264 DVI encoding appliance in a 4RU (21 blades) chassis, transports secure, low latency, HD video over any network at extremely low bitrates. The Makito X decoder delivers dual channel HD digital video to 3G-SDI and HDMI interfaces, supporting all HD standards up to 1080p60. The Makito X decoder is a unique match for the Makito X encoder, yielding H.264 1080p60 with an extremely low end-to-end latency.
The new digital signage system is complemented by an upgraded audio system, which boasts Tannoy in-ceiling speakers and Shure portable 4-channel microphone mixer with six transformers to provide protection from RF interference and exceptionally quiet performance.
